Second interview - cleared!

Tonight our social worker came over for our second home study interview. This interview only took two hours, much shorter than the last session. We talked about various special needs and challenges in adoptions. We also covered the parameters of the child we'd like to adopt - age, special needs, gender, etc. We also talked some more about marriage and child schooling.

We are almost done with the home study process! All that's left is for the social worker to run our state child abuse checks and to write the actual home study document. We should have a copy in our hands by the end of the first week of September!

After that, we send the home study to the orphanage to get approval to be matched with our daughter. We can't wait to receive the email that says she's ours!
